A senior judge threw out Max Mosley's latest bid to sue the Daily Mail yesterday.
The ex-Formula One boss was told his application had 'no prospect of success'.
Last December, he lost a High Court case accusing this newspaper of malicious prosecution.
He tried to appeal, but yesterday Lady Justice Macur, sitting in the Court of Appeal, refused him permission.

- Homeless people sleeping at Bangkok train station Footage shows homeless people sleeping around the main train station in Bangkok, Thailand, on Wednesday aftrernoon (April 7). The building attracts hundreds of struggling locals who nap in the busy building throughout the day and night. Numbers of homeless people have increased due to the effect of the Covid-19 pandemic on the country's economy. Rail chiefs have closed the building to the homeless people from 11:30pm to 3am due to the high numbers that were sleeping there. Natee Sarawaree, an activist with a foundation that provides aid to the homeless population, said: 'Homeless people have two main concerns about space, which are places to sleep and go to the toilet. At Hua Lamphong, they could sleep in the terminal and use the station's bathroom. It was a place that allowed them to be visible to society as well as solved some of the homeless issues.' Thailand's tourism-reliant economy has been hit had by the pandemic with banks warning it could take years before it recovers. The country's Krungsri Bank forecasts that it will be up to three years before tourism returns to its pre-pandemic levels. The country has recorded a relatively low 24,961 Covid-19 infections and 82 deaths as of February 18 but the impact on the tourism-dependent economy has been devastating. Newsflare

In 2018, the Daily Mail unearthed a political leaflet that had been mentioned in the 2008 trial.
The racist pamphlet published by Mr Mosley - saying 'coloured immigrants' spread 'terrible diseases like leprosy' and should be sent 'home' - was from a 1961 by-election involving his father Sir Oswald Mosley's political Union Movement.

Last year, Mr Mosley took this newspaper to court, accusing it of 'cynically and maliciously' reporting 'bogus concerns' to the Crown Prosecution Service.
The Mail argued he had no claim - as no 'prosecution' had taken place.
At the High Court, Mr Justice Nicklin struck out Mr Mosley's claim, saying that it was clear his 'real complaint' was about 'the reputational harm' caused by the Mail's articles.
In one hearing, Mr Justice Nicklin questioned why Mr Mosley was pursuing a malicious prosecution case rather than trying to sue for defamation.
Last night, legal commentator Mark Stephens said: 'My advice to Max Mosley would have been: when in a hole, stop digging.'Read more
